Its not even Halloween yet and I’m writing a post about what toys are going to be hot for Christmas! For my readers that have children we have all been there, done that in previous years. Running out to the Target or Toys ‘R’ Us only to find the last Tickle Me Elmo is gone. Thinking we are a creative bunch we begin surfing Ebay and Craig’s list only to find the toy we want is commanding a $200 premium over list price!
I urge you to get out this weekend, or stay in and let you mouse do the shopping and pickup these hot toys before its too late. I have done some research and have made my best guesses as to what toys they want. Also I will give my best guess if there is going to be a supply issue.
Hot toys for teens
Since I love electronics, lets start there!
Nintendo Switch – $299.99
Switch is the latest in Nintendo’s long line of video game consoles. You can play at home on the big screen or take the device portable on the go!
Hot Factor – 8 out of 10 : Switch has been on the market for a number of months now and has been well received by the video game community. If you ask me its “evolutionary” NOT “revolutionary” and is just the next incarnation of the Wii.
Stock – I estimate stock will be available and this will NOT sell out
Father’s Day is just a few days away, and if your like me spending time with my family is the best gift of all. However if you choose to pickup some gifts for Dad, maybe my list of inexpensive ideas will spark your interest.
This cool retro NES controller clock is perfect for the geeky dad that has everything. Laser cut 10″ x 4 ½” out of hard wood and wall mountable. I can almost guarantee your Dad does not have one. Perfect for Father’s Day.
There are hundreds of dash cams on the market, and I believe that they are a great investment, not only for safety but for security as well. I personally own the KDLINKS X1 Camera $170 and purchased it specifically because it is designed to take extreme heat and cold. There are other lower cost cameras starting at around $50. The average price for a decent unit is around $100. Be sure to read the reviews before you make a purchase Continue reading “10 Great Father’s Day Gifts Under $100”
Do you love retro gaming? Maybe a big fan of the original Nintendo Entertainment System? (NES) This new console may interest you.
Back in the fall around the holidays Nintendo released the NES Mini Classic Edition console with about 30 included games. The units sold out from Amazon in about 10 minutes. The demand was so high it crashed Amazon’s web servers.
My wife bought me one of these HyperChiller contraptions for Christmas last year and I thought it was a neat idea. Who wouldn’t enjoy iced coffee without the ice watering it down. Too bad I don’t drink a drop of Coffee, however I am an iced tea drinker. I decided to give it a go at making some fresh brewed tea and see how it performs.
How does this thing work?
Think of the HyperChiller as a double lined thermos that surrounds your beverage with two chambers of ice. The liquid is contained in a stainless steel cup that prevents the ice from diluting your drink, while allowing very fast heat transfer to cool down your liquid refreshment in a hurry.
Is your Mom into technology? Maybe a little on the geeky side? Well I tried to put together a list of 10 unique Mother’s day gifts that maybe your mom would enjoy. Scroll down and take a look. Don’t forget to check out the bonus gift. (I made it!)
Give Mom a break and let the robot do the cleaning for her. Roomba has been around for quite a while and is my favorite robot vacuum. However so many other brands and styles have entered the market at various price ranges. The Roomba 650 pictured to the left is about $325. If you click through this LINK you will see robot cleaners from $60 on up. Just read the reviews before you make a purchase. Especially if you have pets.
